McDermott Will & Emery LLP places great importance on its longstanding relationships with clients, many of which are household names such as ExxonMobil or Motorola. It is described as ‘very strong in the toxic tort area’. The firm handles several high-profile mass torts and MDLs, drawing on its robust, nationwide team of litigators and experienced trial lawyers as it defends clients against a wide array of claims, from groundwater contamination to glyphosate and asbestos exposure. Anthony Upshaw in Miami, who is involved in many of the practice’s high-profile matters, leads the practice together with experienced first chair litigator Terrence Dee in Chicago. New York-based James Pardo, who has a broad range of experience in this space, is a name to note.
